That itchy feeling happens to my skin when it's been chilled and then warmed up. It usually happens on my legs, especially on the fronts of my thighs after going for a walk in the winter cold. The skin gets red and bumpy and itches like the devil once I'm back inside and warming up. I can also remember having this happen growing up and coming indoors after ice skating, etc., so I've never associated it with anything other than sensitive skin.
I also had a heart cath 4 yrs ago and was pretty terrified of the whole thing beforehand, but it was truly not traumatic at all.....easier on my body than a dental procedure! Sorry you're having problems....hope you get some answers and treatment and things calm down.
diagnoses: mono 1972; postviral CFS 1997; fibro 1998; CEBV 2005; UCTD (dx limbo) 2007
meds: occasional low dose xanax for sleep, artificial tears w/ ointment at night, ibuprophin (none of which manages the problems very well!)
We cannot avoid the birds of sadness flying over our heads, but we need not let them make nests in our hair.
